Criagiau Cigfran features natural microdiorite with sport climbs up to 30 metres over several sectors including what is reputedly "the best sport climb in North Wales" - Release the Hounds.
The sectors are:
Park on Pendalar on the outskirts of Llanfairfechan and head for the old quarry incline which is visible towards the east of the town. The incline leads to a good track which contours the hillside and the crag is above this a short distance further east. It is on land mapped as "open access".

The new A55 climb book says to go right through the large black gate. Don't - it should say left!! Follow the turquoise waymark arrows until you reach a fence. This is a tall wire one, with a wirecuttered hole ripped in it. Go though the hole then bushwhack up a rough path to the incline.|
